A nice Sunday Brunch

The food was great, heard it was good, but exceeded our expectations. Took a long time to seat us (party of 12) even though it wasn't crowded, pretty sure they forgot about us until we finally flagged someone down. Getting drinks refilled was too much of challenge, only happened when we chased... read more

What a disappointment! We have been coming to this buffet at least once every time we visit Las Vegas, for many years. It has always been great. I'm not sure what has happened, but the food quality and variety has really slipped. It was way too pricy for what they are serving now. You're much better off going to the... More

Great food and selection. Generous with prime rib which is a plus. Fantastic Asian food. caught a number of servers standing around chatting complaining work hours something a customer doesn't want to hear.

After we checked into our room at the hotel we went down for dinner. There are so many restaurants to choose from at MB, but we decided on the buffet. We paid about $65 for 2 people. Too expensive for the quality and selection of food available. The food was tasteless, warm not hot, and just awful. I would definitely... More

We always like to eat at bayside buffet right before we leave Vegas. We have been here at least 5 times in a span of a couple of years. Each time, we really enjoy the food. They have an omelet station where they make the omelet in front of you. We were there right before breakfast was ending so we... More

We had to wait a little bit (but not too long) before we got in. We went to the Buffet at Bellagio the day before but I liked this one better over all. I still remember how good their tamales were. Yum. ベガスではベラッジオのバフェが一番と聞きますが、こっちの方が美味しかったです。

What a load of rubbish! This is putting it politely. We paid about $32 each for a buffet, the food wasn't even hot, it tasted like rubber, the dessert wasn't up to much either. My partner and I came out with tummy aches and both had to sit on the toilet for a while! Really disappointed definitely DO NOT recommend... More

I will start by saying that I am not a big eater of Asian cuisine, which heavily weighed on my opinion. They had many Asian options, but not much of the other types of Cuisine. American choices included the salad bar, fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Mexican was tamales and taquitos. Pizza and a pasta selection for Italian. But, I... More

We were not impressed with this buffet. They did not have a big selection of food. The majority of the restaurant is for seating and only a small area is for the actual buffet. We will never go back!

Great selection of food for brunch, and food was delicious. I used my 2 for 1 coupon from my vegas, so good value.
